Mac Baren Amsterdamer
Hollandsche Rooktabak Fijne Snede. Fine cut. It used to be, as per the picture, Hollandsche Rooktabak Middel Snede, a medium cut. You may know the Amsterdamer from your last holiday trip to France, a blend of choice tobaccos, blended after an old dutch recipe. He's flavored really mild with a touch of licorice and has excellent burning qualities. This traditional loose-cut blend from South American and African Virginia tobaccos, as well as Kentucky from South America and far East is a wonderful treat for pipe smokers that look for a tobacco with a strong character.
Notes: Previously produced by Imperial Tobaccos; and before that, owned and produced by Seita, it is now owned and manufactured by Mac Baren. From Mac Baren's website: "A typical Dutch blend based on the finest Virginia and dark fired Kentucky tobaccos. The Virginia tobacco origins from 2 continents and adds a natural sweetness to the blend. The dark fired Kentucky contributes to taste with a slight smoky note due to the fire-curing. Different tobaccos each with their own distinctiveness are masterly blended to perfection to create the greatness in Amsterdamer. The blend is a loose cut pipe tobacco which makes it easy for the pipe smoker to handle."
